The Working Group is charged specifically with guiding development and sustainability of high quality online learning experiences to meet ANZSOM’s ongoing commitment to support members and provide tangible value for their membership.
Scope of work
The Secretariat is charged with developing the online learning material that is hosted on the ANZSOM webpage. This mainly includes modules developed from presentations at the Annual Scientific Meeting and Branch educational meetings. There are currently 51 modules (as of December 2018) hosted on the member only section of the website. The Working Group will support this activity and provide expert guidance to ensure relevance and quality of the offerings. Responsibilities of the Working Group include:
Overseeing the selection of presentations from ANZSOM and AFOEM meetings for hosting on the website
Advising on external learning resources and updates (e.g. courses, conferences, webinars, guidelines etc.) that may be promoted to members
Advising and contributing to ‘Learning Updates’- a quarterly emarketing promoting use of the ANZSOM online learning and other learning resources available (e.g. provide descriptions and commentary of modules and/or providing other relevant resources)
The Secretariat will provide support and oversight of module development, liaising with speakers and managing the synchronisation and hosting of presentations onto the website. It is anticipated that the Working Group will meet about four times per year. The group will be chaired by the Secretary General, Virginia Li.

Health professionals have an obligation to undertake continuing professional development to maintain their professional registration. Doctors, nurses and some allied health professionals (such as physiotherapists) are required to demonstrate to the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) that they have completed appropriate development programs annually.
ANZSOM provides continual professional development opportunities via online learning resources, the Annual Scientific Meeting and state branch meetings. Generally these activities are not formally accredited with the Royal Australian College of Nursing, Royal Australian College of General Practitioners or Royal Australasian College of Physicians (AFOEM), which affects how members claim their CPD points with these bodies.
For details regarding profession-specific CPD requirements and how ANZSOM CPD contributes, download the document below or for more details please contact your governing / registration body directly.
Certificates of completion are no longer provided since the transition to hosting presentation-based (audio & powerpoint presentation) directly onto the members-only section. However, you can record the dates of completion for each module in the My Profile section.
